Cold Steel Boar Hunting Spear | SK-5 Steel, American Ash Wood, CS95BOASK
For 200 years, the boar spear reigned supreme as the staff weapon of choice in the forests and often the battlefield as well. Only the invention of reliable firearms in the 18th century could fade its renown. it would have disappeared altogether if not for the decadent tastes of the Northern European nobility. To them, hunting with a firearm was a pale substitute for the thrill of hand to hand combat in the forest with nothing but a spear.
You too can enjoy the same excitement with Cold Steel's® modern recreation of this classic spear. Cold forged out of medium carbon SK-5 steel and heat treated to a spring temper, the massive blade is designed to flex under stress instead of breaking.
It's sharpened with a good utility edge and features a sturdy reinforcing rib to make it as stiff as possible for maximum penetration. The Boar Spear comes complete with a stout premium ash shaft and a Secure-Ex® Sheath.
